The only known text of this work is a fragmentary draft on a small sheet of paper in the South African National Gallery. The text appears some kind of diary notation reflecting on an event in DGR's life and relations with a friend. The number “4” in the upper right corner suggests that this is the fourth page of the document, the previous pages being missing.
It is also possible that the text is part of a sketch for a fiction that DGR was planning to write.
The text is early, 1850 or 1849.
The fragment has never been printed.
